About us

AGRO CS is an entirely Czech enterprise established in 1992. At the beginning it continued doing the work initially performed by Agropodnik Česká Skalice, which served growers in expert advisory, warehousing and application of fertilizers. In the following years, AGRO CS focused on building up on its expert knowledge and experience to expand its range of products with own substrate mixes and fertilizers in small consumer packaging. The systematic development of these activities made AGRO CS one of Central and Eastern European leaders in substrates, fertilizers and grass seed.

At the moment the mother company AGRO CS employs 240 people. With all the daughter companies there are more than 400 employees. The annual turnover on the domestic market equals to 1.5 billion CZK (58 mil €). The daughter companies are based in Slovakia, Lithuania, Hungary and Romania.

AGRO CS has four divisions:


The Garden division supplies the hobby and professional market with our own produce of substrates, fertilizers, grass seed and professional turf, decorative materials, plant-protection agents and other products for gardening. The division is active all over Central and Eastern Europe and holds an exclusive licence to sell the popular Kristalon fertilizer in hobby packages.


The Engineering Division supplies technological line units for stocking, sorting, mixing, out-stocking and shipping of industrial fertilizers and substrates, bag and big-bag fillers. The division also runs a filling station, distributes AdBlue and packages for loose materials.

Agricultural services

The Agricultural Division supplies fertilizers and provides a full range of services for growers and distributors in the Czech Republic. Supported by a laboratory accredited by the Czech Accreditation Institute the division advises, consults, takes samples, performs physical, chemical and microbiological analysing of substrates, fertilizers, silts, feeds, fruit and vegetables.


The BioEnergy Division operates a 1-4 MW bio-gas station with adjacent composting plant on the outskirts of Jaroměř. Both facilities transform plant-based waste materials into electricity and heat supplied to the households of Jaroměř, the composting plant produces certified compost for gardening and agriculture. The division also runs a small hydro-electric station on the River Úpa, which is situated within the premises of AGRO CS production and logistics centre in V Lukách.
